"By matchmaking creators with developers, the Epic Games Store makes it easier for players to discover games, and rewards content creators for their efforts".

The Epic Games store is a long-term effort that we'll be extending and improving for years.

Epic is offering what seems like a sweet deal for developers who get involved with the project.

ORIGINAL: Fortnite developer Epic Games is about to reveal another teaser for Season 7.

For PC Games, steam is one of the largest stores now available.

Bulandshahr violence over cow slaughter: Killed inspector probed Akhlaq case
Chandra's testimony is part of the second FIR filed in the mob violence that led to the deaths of Singh and a 22-year-old man . According to data analytics site India Spend, nearly 80 cases of cow-related violence were reported between 2012 and 2017.


Details are a bit murky: Epic Games plans to launch with a set of "hand-curated" games for PC and Mac and open the store to a wider assortment of games and other platforms such as Android throughout 2019. Still, few other companies are as well positioned as Epic to provide real competition to Valve, as the Epic Games Store will be available through the existing Epic Games Launcher. If so, which do you use? The Epic Games store is Epic Games' challenge to the Steam store which is notorious for its 30% cut from the developers. This program will expand to the Epic Games Store as a whole, allowing players to directly support creators from YouTube, Twitch, and other platforms. The new tiered system adjusts the revenue share to 75%/25% and 80%/20% when game earnings exceed $10 million and $50 million on Steam. Because of the high volume of Fortnite transactions, we can process store payments, serve bandwidth, and support customers very efficiently.

The text reads, "Thursday during #TheGameAwards don't miss a @fortnitegame announcement and world premiere from Epic's @DonaldMustard, streaming live at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT everywhere".

The Epic Games store is open to games built with any engine, and the first releases span Unreal, Unity and internal engines.

Steam is a massive platform and it's hard to imagine Epic will wipe it out completely, but they're making the right steps to counter Valve's goliath sales machine. It's no secret the Play Store is absolutely stagnant when it comes to discovery, with the majority of releases taking a backseat to the many large developers conveniently provided all of the prominent real estate.

Now you: do you use online game stores?
